Eco Mesh Banner – 100% Recyclable

Eco Mesh Banner is a 180gsm PVC free mesh banner material. Made from PET, it conforms to Plastics Recycling Code 1 and is 100% recyclable. Ideal for any outdoor application where wind is an issue and ecological approval is required.

Strong, yet lets wind through

Eco Mesh banner material is much lighter in weight than a traditional front light banner. Winds of 30mph+ will damage regular banners, hems and eyelets may be ripped out. Remember that a large non-mesh banner acts as a giant sail. Gusts of wind can quickly destroy a banner. Bigger non-mesh banners are excellent as long as they are installed against a solid surface or within a fixed wall-mounted tension-frame system.

Lower cost

The initial cost of an Eco Mesh banner or a standard Eco banner is relatively the same. Due to a lower wind resistance factor, Eco Mesh Banners last longer outdoors. Lowering the impact of the wind can make Eco Mesh banners cheaper in the long run.

Eco Mesh banner material contains thousands of tiny holes to decrease wind resistance.

Why use an Eco Mesh Banner?

  • Lighter and easier to fit
  • Allows air to pass through
  • Reduces wind loading on fences, cafe barriers and scaffolding
  • Acoustically transparent for use over concert speakers
  • Hardwearing and scuff resistant
  • Ideal as a scaffolding banner
  • Suitable as a Building Wrap
  • Weather resistant, fade resistant

Where to use Eco Mesh Banner

  • Fence covers and banners – Mesh reduces wind loading on the fence structure.
  • Building Wraps – Mesh is lighter and less wind-resistant for use high up on scaffolding.
  • Tennis Courts – Mesh provides some wind protection and fantastic advertising opportunities.
  • Concert Speakers – Eco Mesh is more acoustically transparent, offering an excellent solution for covering speaker stacks.

Eco Mesh Banner Specifications

  • B1 Flame Retardant product with certificate available.
  • High quality reinforced 180gsm vinyl mesh material.
  • Nickel-plated eyelets with 12mm diameter hole.
  • Strong hems and pockets.
  • Ideal indoors or outdoors.
  • Scratch and fade resistant.
  • High-resolution, full-colour print.

Alternatives to Eco Mesh Banner

We offer a full banner printing service onto a range of mesh banner materials. Here are some alternatives for you to consider.

PVC AirMesh Banner

This fabric mesh banner is an even lighter material with bigger holes, resulting in more airflow being able to pass through the material. Typically used for higher, more exposed locations where wind loading will be an issue.

AirMesh Flag 115gsm

At only 115gsm, AirMesh Flag is our lightest mesh fabric. PVC-free. As a polyester-based fabric, it is also much more eco-friendly than PVC products. Acoustically transparent, this mesh fabric banner material is ideal as speaker scrim.

Express Mesh Banner

Ideal for smaller mesh banners required very quickly. Printed on our smaller machines and limited in size to 1.25m in one dimension.

Artwork Quality Checks

In house pre-press experts will quality check your artwork before sending to print. Sizing or image resolution issues will be referred back to you before we proceed.

Fitting Eco Mesh Banners

A professional survey of your intended installation site is advisable for any outdoor banners over 25 square metres in size. A surveyor will calculate wind-loading on the structure and advise on the fixings necessary.
Giant Mesh Banners such as Building Wraps are usually installed in sections, straight onto scaffolding using Bungee Shock Cord. Your scaffolder should ensure that no pole ends are projecting that they may damage your banner.
Without scaffolding, large mesh banners can also be installed using a wire cable frame and a criss-cross effect of bungee rope. This method allows, even more, give when the wind hits the mesh banner and ensures a secure and long-lasting installation.

Finishing Mesh Banners

As standard, we hem and eyelet our Mesh Banners all round with metal eyelets. We can add pockets to slide poles through if required at no extra cost; please specify the pole diameter in your order notes. Larger mesh banners can have reinforced hems at a slight additional cost.

Why choose Hems and Eyelets on a Mesh Banner?

Hem and Eyelets are the most popular finishing method. We can add more eyeholes if required. If you need additional eyelets adding, then please enter this information into the ‘Additional Information’ box when ordering.

How can I attach my mesh banner to a wall?

We can finish the banner with hem and eyelets. You can then screw your banner to the wall or cladding using large washers and screws.

As an option, you can select Heavy Duty Hems and Eyelets, recommended if your mesh banner is over 20 square metres in size.

Applications that might require a hem and eyelets include:

  • Walls (screw into the brick using wide-head screws and penny washers).
  • Fences/railings, attached using zip ties.
  • Scaffolding (Zip ties or bungee cord).
  • Metal cladding (tech bolts and penny washers).

Why do I need Pole Pockets?

We can manufacture your mesh PVC banner with pole pockets if required. Pole pockets allow the banner to slide over a pole or cable. Pole pockets can be produced to any size you needed. As well as a pole pocket, we can add additional eyelets if required.
A pocket for a pole can be used to slide in a weighted bar or dowel. In some instances, a broom handle or similar can be placed inside the bottom, acting as a weight to tension the banner. Weighting creates a more rigid appearance and is less likely to move around.

Applications that might require a pole pocket include:

  • Scaffolding.
  • Rigging or stage sets.
  • Where a cable or tensioned rope is required.
  • Lamppost banner brackets.
  • Projecting banner brackets.
  • To add tension by adding a weighted dowel or rod to the bottom pocket for hanging internally.

Check our Guide to Pole Pockets on Banners.

Design Guide for Mesh Banners

Your Eco mesh banners are printed from your print-ready artwork. Call for assistance if you require your banners to be designed or laid up.

Set your dimensions correctly

Set your artwork to the correct proportions of your final printed mesh banner. We do not require any bleed on the artwork for a printed mesh. If necessary, you can set your artwork to scale.

Set the correct CMYK colour settings

Make sure that you set your colour settings to CMYK. Our mesh banner printers use a full-colour solvent printing process which works using a CMYK Process. Files that are sent to use using an RGB setup will be changed automatically. Sometimes this can make the colours on your mesh printed banner seem weak & washed out. We will check for this before printing and contact you if required.

The positioning of eyelets on your Printed Mesh Banners

Please leave a clear area of approx 50mm inside the outside edge of the banner. Background colour/images are not a problem. The eyelets can obscure items to close to the perimeter. Do not place relevant text, design elements, small print or logos to near the edge of the banner. Around our mesh banners, we will add hem and eyelets unless otherwise stated. It is not advised to have just eye holes (without the hem) as this can cause the material to rip.
We space our eyelets approx every 500mm apart unless otherwise stated. We evenly space the eyelets. Gaps will vary slightly on different sizes of banners.

Pole Pockets on Mesh Banners

We can finish your mesh banners with pole pockets if required. Standard scaffold tubes need a 150mm flat pocket size to fit comfortably with plenty of space as to not cause to much tension on the pocket seam. Leave clear area at the top and the bottom of the banners to allow for the pockets. If your banner is 2m height, please set to 2m height and then make sure that no text, logos and important info enters the top 150mm or bottom 150mm of the design area. Solid colour/ background images or patterns are perfect, just not text or vital information. Check here for more information on pole pockets and how to design for them.

Mesh Banner Design Principles

It is important to consider viewing distances. Always create your artwork to give the highest possible impact on a mesh banner. Contrasting colours will give your banner much more bang than washed out subtle colours.
Also, think about text sizes. Text is easier to read from a distance if it is sizable. Use upper and lower fonts. Look at road signs as they are all in upper and lower type rather than all capitals. Subconsciously your eyes will read upper and lower (sentence case).

Font type.

Usually, clearer fonts work better than stripy, script or unreadable fonts. Look at most leading brands, i.e. McDonald’s, IKEA, B&Q, Dominos Pizza – all these companies use very readable fonts and typefaces.
Less is more, cramming every little bit of information onto your mesh banner probably isn’t a good idea. Remember to use areas of space and give your design space to breathe. The best mesh banner designs are always simple and straight to the point.

Artwork Guidelines Back to top


Before submitting artwork, please make sure you have read these guidelines carefully

We check all artworks prior to printing.  If we see any issues with your artwork we will notify you before printing. If we see an issue we will contact you and your order will be placed on hold until we have a response.  Please read information on this link for more information on our file checks and print processes Our processes and pre print file checking

We do try and spot errors however we cannot accept responsibility for any incorrect printing due to setup / artwork error.

Setting your artwork correctly

Banner World Ltd doesn't offer a design service.  Please ensure that your artwork is set correctly.  If you are unsure about creating artwork or have no understanding of setting artworks then please seek the assistance of a Graphic Designer.  If you don't have print ready artwork then DO NOT place the order.  If you would like to speak to us then please call us on 01253 897 840 or email sales@bannerworld.co.uk

File Formats

We only accept files in PDF, AI, EPS, JPEG, PSD or TIF Formats
(Tif / PSD files must be flattened)

Type & Text

All Text on files should ideally be converted to outlines, curves or paths.  Please make sure text is converted if possible in your software before saving PDF files.

Colour Settings

All Files should be set to CMYK format.  Please make sure there are no spot colours or pantones in your artwork as this can output unexpected results. As our service is a CMYK 4 colour process we cannot guarantee exact matches to Pantone, Ral or Spot colours.

Colour Matching

Please supply files in a CMYK format. Files supplied to us in an RGB format will be automatically converted to CMYK and you will not be notified of this. Please be aware that Print machines, hand held devices and desktop printers will interpret and show colours differently to each other. We cannot be held responsible for colours printing incorrectly due to errors in supplied print files.
We print on a wide range of different machines and cannot guarantee a perfect match from one print method to another. Due to print tolerances and the nature of our business we cannot guarantee an exact match to something that is shown on a computer screen.  Most creams, greys and CMYK printed golds can print differently to how they look on screen.
If you are unsure regarding colours then please ask or quote a Pantone reference. Pantone colour matching is an extra charge of £30+vat per colour. Due to the nature and limitations of the CMYK printing system exact Pantone matches cannot be guaranteed. Please note that Pantone references used in print files will be converted to CMYK prior to printing which will not guarantee a colour match.
For larger jobs it is advisable to order a minimum order sample of the colour before ordering, but doing this will delay the order for another 5-6 working days.

Artwork Templates

For certain items an artwork template is supplied on the product page.  These templates are only for items which are set to a specified size. Ie feather flags / deckchairs etc.  This will need downloading and your artwork setting on the template prior to ordering.  If using the template please assign a separate layer for the artwork and save as a layered pdf, ai or eps file.  Please embed images and create outlines on the type before saving. Ask us for SVG format templates if you are using software such as Canva.

Overprints

Overprints MUST NOT be used in files.

File Names

Print file names much be as short and descriptive as possible.

Colour Profiles

Print files MUST NOT contain ICC colour profiles

Use of Black

Correct Black Settings gives the print a deeper colour as sometimes using just black the image can look grainy and 'washed out’. If you have files with large amounts of black in the file, use the following guidelines.

We recommend using a rich black which is made up of:
C50 / M50 / Y 50/ K100.

Pole Pockets

When ordering make sure you select the finished overall size of your banner including the pockets. So if you select a 1m wide x 2m height, then we will manufacture the banner to a total the height of 2m including the pockets.

Clear areas on pole pockets

Please make sure that you leave a clear area for your pockets. The term ‘clear area’ means no items of text or logos.  So if you have 150mm flat pockets top and bottom, please don’t let any text or logos to run into these areas. Please note that on a 1500mm flat pocket you will also need to leave an additional 25mm extra for the weld (so 175mm in total. Background colours or images are fine, just no readable text or logos.

Double sided banners

We have special software which flips certain parts of your banners so as to create a seamless pocket on the opposite side. When ordering a double sided banner please just follow the above steps, as the file(s) will need to be set up in the same way. If you require a different image on each side of your double sided banner not a problem, just upload x2 files stating that you require a different image on each side.
For the full comprehensive guide on Pole Pockets click this link please refer to our Pole Pocket Guide here.

Bleed & Crop Marks

Banners, Fabrics and Backdrops

Set your artwork without bleed or crop marks. On banners please remember to leave clear area all around of 4cm so not to conflict with the position of the eyelets.

Decals, Vinyl Prints, Rigid Boards

Please supply all files with 5mm bleed all round.  Please don’t save the files with crop marks.

Cut to shape

Vinyl / static cling

In case of an artwork being cut to shape, we require a 5mm bleed plus a contour cut supplied in a separate layer. The cut line should be a contrasting stroke colour to the artwork and clearly named in an individual layer ‘CutContour’

Banners

When showing eyelet positions and/or wind slits or cutter lines on banners.  Please supply the artwork file and a separate cutter file.  Please ensure that both files are set to the same artboard size and are set to the same scale.
Please supply a separate ai, eps, or pdf file with the cutter or eyelets marks.

Please note

Banner World can not be held responsible for any spelling errors / typos / incorrect telephone numbers, or improper setup of files.  If we believe that a file is incorrect before production we will contact you and request a new file.  We may refuse to accept files not suitably prepared for print.  Any additional operations aimed at correcting files to the above guidelines and all changes made by Banner World upon the request of the customer shall be treated as an additional service and may incur an extra surcharge.

Frequently Asked Questions Back to top


What's the maximum size eco mesh banner you can print?

We produce eco mesh banners to any size, including ones big enough to wrap around buildings. Our machines print onto 5m wide rolls and sections of mesh are welded together to create bigger banners.

Why should I choose an Eco Mesh Banner?

Mesh material allows wind to pass through it. If your banner is going to be placed in an exposed location, you should use Mesh. This reduces the wind-loading on the structure you install it on.

What type of eyelets do you use?

All banners are eyeleted using nickel plated silver eyelets which have a 12mm hole. All banners which specify hem and eyelets are eyeleted every 500mm. Eyelets are evenly spaced across the length and width of the banner so gaps will be as near to 500mm as possible. If you require more eyelets or require them in certain positions, please add this into your order notes.

What are pole pockets?

We can finish your mesh banner with pole pockets if required, We can make the pocket any size you require.

Can this material be printed on both sides?

No. This is a single sided printed only. The reverse side will be white in colour.

I want to order x6 banners but would like you to print x1 of each design. Is this possible?

Yes of course. Upload all your files, then in the additional information box let us know the breakdown of quantities.

How long is delivery?

Eco Mesh Banners will be with you in 5-6 working days from order and approval of artwork.

Can you colour match?

Our print process is CMYK with a high degree of colour-matching. Our machines are highly calibrated to accurately reproduce the information in CMYK print files. Call us if you need to match to specific corporate branding or Pantone colours.

Is the material flame retardant?

Yes. Our Eco Mesh is flame retardant to B1 specification.
